at the white house on friday, along with house minority leader nancy pelosi and senate majority leader harry reid and minority leader senator mitch mcconnell. jeff, it seems like the media are poised to blame republicans if the deal falls apart. >> if you look at the polling, over half the country believes it's the g.o.p.'s fault if this deal falls apart. why that? the democrats and the president himself have done an effective job of essentially trashing republicans saying that this whole, the reason that there's a, you know, there isn't a deal in the first place, because it's their fault and that's not true. it's both parties that did this and the president particularly not showing leadership and kicking the can down the road and creating a super committee. the media is not covering this correctly at all. reporting that the president want a deficit package. 1 trillion from tending the war and that's going to happen and another trillion from spending cuts in the past so they are he completely ignoring that and again, it's not spending cuts that the president is going to agree to in the end.

better than to take the last budget the senate did, harry reid with his buddies, nancy pelosi, the 2008 free bailout, free stimulus budget and spent $2.5 trillion. nobody complained it didn't spend enough. if we adopted their budget right now, the 2008 budget, $1 trillion per year less than we are spenning right now. >> sean: we spend all of this time with an election and we are right back where we were. i don't know the republicans that voted for an increase -- here's my question to you. here's my question. do you think the leadership in the house is glg to hold the line on increasing taxes? >> well, gee... i know that we had the biggest conservative wave election in american history 2 years ago. two years later, we had a continuing resolution, a continuing resolution, a continuing resolution, debt ceil being increase. we -- ceiling increase. we ended up cutting nothing, really. we really-- >>> you are saying no. >> two years of leverage for nothing. it's time to use the leverage of the house. it's one-half of one-third, but the most important half of the legislative body. the founders
